Which is more Transitory, the Body or the Spirit?  — In legal, moral, and religious institutions the external and concrete elements — in other words, rites, gestures, and ceremonies — are the most permanent.  They are the body to which a new spirit is constantly being superadded.  The cult, like an unchangeable text, is ever interpreted anew.  Concepts and emotions are fluid, customs are solid.
